The blessed Reformation began in Britain when King Henry VIII read this verse from the Latin Vulgate Bible:

Turpitudinem uxoris fratris tui non revelabis quia turpitudo fratris tui est (Leviticus 18:16, Latin Vulgate Version).

Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy brother's wife: because it is the nakedness of thy brother (Leviticus 18:16, Douay Rheims Version).

By the time of Moses, the human race had degenerated genetically, so JEHOVAH gave a whole list of prohibited marriages to ensure that no physical or mentally deformed babies would be born in Israel:

No one is to approach any close relative to have sexual relations. I am JEHOVAH (Leviticus 18:6).

Darwin HATED sound genetics, and he wanted all his countrymen to be mentally retarded just like him. After his theory of evilution, his crowning folly was marrying his first cousin, Emma Wedgwood

To discredit the divine warning against incest, Darwin invented the science fiction theory of evilution.

As proof for evilution, so that he could marry cousin Emma Wedgwood, Darwin revised the age of the Grand Canyon by millions of years!!

Because monkeys have twins, the wicked Darwin suggested that human twins were also a normal biological process!

Charles Darwin (18091882).
circa 1850.

According to the Holy Bible, mankind is degenerating and becoming more corrupt as we approach the end of time. Darwin denied this and defiantly declared the ascent of man.

The Grand Canyon is the most sublime spectacle in the New Jerusalem!

The most sublime spectacle in the entire world is the Grand Canyon in Arizona. It is considered the First of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

Before the time of Charles Darwin, most educated people believed that the canyon was formed rapidly during the year of the Noahic Flood.

In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights (Genesis 7:11).

Saint Cephas believed in the historicity of the Great Flood:

For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of Elohim the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished
(II St. Cephas 3:5-6).

Even William Shake-speare believed that the world was only 6000 years old:

The poor world is almost six thousand years old, and in all this time there was not any man died in his own person, videlicet, in a love-cause. (As You Like It, Act IV, i.86).

Even Sir Isaac Newton had no problem with the chronology found in the King James Bible that dated the creation at 4004 BC.

The highly destructive power of water is well known but water does not meander but go in a straight line unless blocked by some powerful obstacle. Mighty rivers existed before the Great Flood (Genesis 2:10) so it is scientific to assume that the earth opened up under a pre-Flood Colorado River. Seas were much smaller before the Great Flood and many rivers returned underground like the Humbolt River in Nevada.

The Grand Canyon is 277 miles (446 km) long, up to 18 miles (29 km) wide, and attains a depth of over a mile (6,000 feet or 1,800 meters)

A river runs through the Canyon called the Colorado River so evolutionists believe that the canyon was carved by the river over millions of years. It is beyond belief that the destructive power of JEHOVAH's wrath should be used to uphold anti-Biblical lies and falsehood.

Geographic features like the Grand Canyon are found all over the earth . . . but cannot be seen or visited by tourists because they are underwater!!

These canyons were formed when the "fountains of the great deep were broken up" and all the world was drowned except for Noah and his family.

Today's "scientists" can't claim that water erosion made the undersea canyons, and they have no explanation why the Monterey canyon is not at the mouth of the Colorado River. The deepest canyon–the Mariana Trench–is located in the Pacific Ocean.

The sinking sand foundation of evolution is time . . . time . . . time....That is why they stole millions of years from our 4500-year-old Grand Canyon.

James White was the first man to traverse the Grand Canyon!!

James White was a gold prospector from Wisconsin. While searching for gold near the Colorado River, his party was ambushed by Indians. In order to escape, White built a raft and fled down the river. His well documented voyage was known to John Wesley Powell. Powell learned from the White voyage that the canyon was dangerous . . . but did not contain impassable waterfalls....White was airbrushed out of history and never mentioned as a precursor to Powell.

In 1867, James Whitefleeing from hostileswas the first man to traverse the canyon.

Whitean ex-Union Civil War soldier was illiterate and could not rush into print with his sensational story.

Many western newspapers carried the story including Denver's Rocky Mountain News.



James White (1837–1917) was the first man to traverse the canyon.

Here is a quote from a massive 673-page biography of Powell published by Oxford University Press:

Was any of it true? The locals believed him, and so did a California newspaper that quickly published his story. So too did Dr. C.C. Parry, a botanist in the survey party organized by General William J. Palmer to find a route extending the Kansas Pacific railroad to the Pacific Ocean. Parry interviewed a recovered White in Callville and calculated that he must have floated on his raft for 550 miles, a journey, Parry concluded, that might safely be made by anyone in a good boat with waterproof supplies. Parry added that "there is not the least reason to doubt that he actually accomplished the journey in the manner and in the time mentioned by him." So also believed Parry's boss, General Palmer, though he did not interview White himself, and so also a British traveler, Dr. William A. Bell, who published a version of the story in his New Tracks in North America (1869). All agreed that White, who did not appear to be a self-promoter but was a quiet, modest fellow, somewhat embarrassed by the attention he was getting, had no motive to lie. (Worster, A River Running West, p. 133).

In the academic world there is a maxim called "publish or perish," so professors will deliberately make their books so massive that only the most earnest seekers after truth will read them.

White said that he "prayed" for deliverance and it came 2 weeks later when he emerged alive at the other end of the canyon.

John Wesley Powell was the first man to "explore" the Grand Canyon!!

John Wesley Powell and his team are credited with being the first men to "explore" the Grand Canyon. Powell could not go alone, and claim all the credit, because he took a bullet in the arm during the Civil War, and was one-armed. In that instance, the rebel would have done the Union a favor if he was more accurate!!

In 1909, Congress erected a monument to John Wesley Powell calling him the first EXPLORER of the canyon.

Technically, Congress was correct, because White was not an explorerbut a man fleeing for his life.

In 1909, many people still knew about the prior voyage of White.

On May 24, 1869, John Wesley Powell set out with 10 men to explore the Grand Canyon and Colorado River. After a hazardous voyage, Powell and 6 survivors completed their odyssey on August 30, 1869.

The goal of the Colorado River Exploring Expedition was to be the first men to "explore" the entire length of the Grand Canyon.

Financing came from the British owned Smithsonian Institution.

The trip through the Grand Canyon was fraught with danger. As well as the rapids, the exploring party had to contend with hostile Indians. Just a few days before the end of the trip, 3 of the men decided to give up and they were later killed by the Indians . . . or Mormons.

The exhausted and half starved men finally emerged from the canyon on August 30, 1869.

Powell was hailed as a national hero and the "conqueror of the Colorado."

Powell was not anxious to share the limelight with the other men so they were quickly forgotten.

Powell emerged from the Grand Canyon a hero and celebrity–a 19th-century version of Charles Lindbergh. In a national series of lectures, the explorer painted his audiences a series of word pictures of the West's greatest natural wonder.

John Wesley Powell was named after John Wesley!!

John Wesley was named after the famous English evangelist John Wesley. John Wesley was an Anglican cleric and Christian theologian. Wesley is largely credited, along with his brother Charles, as founding the Methodist Movement, which began when he took to open-air preaching in a similar manner to George Whitefield. In contrast to Whitefield's Calvinism, Wesley embraced the Arminian doctrines that were dominant in the 18th-century Church of England.

Along with his brother Charles, John Wesley was famous in the British North American colonies.

In 1736, John and Charles were invited by George Oglethorpe to help him establish Christianity in the new colony of Georgia.

They soon grew discouraged and returned to Britain, thereby losing the opportunity of winning thousands of Indians to Christ.

John Wesley published a massive tome entitled Notes on the Entire Bible. He believed in the literal truth of the Book of Genesis and that the Flood occurred 1656 years after the creation of Adam and Eve.

Joseph Powell

Joseph and Mary were the parents of John Wesley Powell.

Joseph grew up in Shrewdsbury, England, and was a contemporary of Charles Darwin.

In 1828, Joseph and Mary were married in Birmingham, England.

Both of them were "devout Methodists."

Charles Darwin just happened to be born in Shrewdsbury in 1809:

During the time when young Joseph Powell was prowling the local neighborhoods–the Dingle, Pride Hill, St. Alkmund's Place, Fish Street–Shrewsbury was a quiet, uneventful provincial town. The most prominent local figure was Dr. Robert Darwin, the physician son of the great scientist and poet Erasmus Darwin. Across the Welsh Bridge that led out of town and into the countryside, on the suburban meadow lands, Robert had built a large Georgian house, the Mount, where he presided over his numerous family, patients, and debtors. In 1809, when Joseph Powell was a small lad, the Darwins gave birth to a son named Charles. That Darwin later became one of the most important thinkers of the modern age, though in his Shrewsbury youth Charles was an unimpressive child of privilege who liked to spend his leisure shooting guns, playing with dogs, and collecting beetles. (Worster, A River Running West, pp. 9-10).

At an early age, Charles was sent to board at Shrewdsbury School–a private institution that prepared students for Oxford or Cambridge. His father, who knew him better that anybody, said that he was a dunce, and predicted that he would only bring disgrace to the family name:

When I left the school I was for my age neither high nor low in it; and I believe that I was considered by all my masters and by my father as a very ordinary boy, rather below the common standard in intellect. To my deep mortification my father once said to me, "You care for nothing but shooting, dogs, and rat-catching, and you will be a disgrace to yourself and all your family." But my father, who was the kindest man I ever knew, and whose memory I love with all my heart, must have been angry and somewhat unjust when he used such words. (Darwin, The Autobiography of Charles Darwin, p. 9).

His father was being kind, Charles was far below the common standard in intellect.

Though the 2 future secret agents were born in the same town, their destinies differed.

Darwin adopted atheism or "naturalist" as a cover, while Joseph Powell was a "devout Methodist."

In 1830, Joseph and Mary emigrated to the United States.

Starting around 1830, the Powells joined a huge exodus from England to the United States. Many of them were Mormons but many of them were Methodists. The Powells did not lack money as they were members of the prosperous middle class. the Powells first settled in Palmyra–the birthplace of Mormon founder Joseph Smith. After 3 years they moved to Mount Morris, where John Wesley was born.

After arriving in New York City, the Powells immediately moved to upstate New York and bought a house in Mount Morris, Livingston County.

That was where John Wesley was born in 1834.

Wesley's father was a lay Methodist preacher, and the Holy Scriptures were his mother's milk. From infancy he knew the story of Adam and Eve, the Noahic Flood, the Exodus, etc., etc. He also would have learned that the Biblical age of the earth was no more than 6000 years. That did not make any difference however, because, like a snake shedding his skin, he threw off his disguise when he grew up.

Powell said that the Grand Canyon was carved by the Colorado River!!

Capitalizing on his fame as the first man to traverse the canyon, Powell began gradually and imperceptibly to preach his new "gospel" of evolution:

The carving of the Grand Canyon is the work of rains and rivers. The vast labyrinth of canyon by which the plateau region drained by the Colorado is dissected is also the work of waters. Every river has excavated its own gorge and every creek has excavated its gorge. When a shower comes in this land, the rills carve canyons–but a little at each storm; and though storms are far apart and the heavens above are cloudless for most of the days of the year, still, years are plenty in the ages, and an intermittent rill called to life by a shower can do much work in centuries of centuries. (Powell, The Exploration of the Colorado River and its Canyons, pp. 390-393).

In 1881, Powell became the second director of the newly formed United States Geological Survey. The first director, Clarence King, was a Civil War draft dodger, and he was involved in a scheme to swingle John C. Frémont out of his Mariposa gold mine in California.

As a snake sheds its skin, Powell discarded his parents religion and became a committed Darwinian.

In 1881, he became the second director of the newly formed United States Geological Survey.

The bureau's main goal was to stop the mining and agricultural development of the West!!

As head of the USGS, Powell used his power to staff the new bureau with his fellow spies and cronies. His agenda was clear and plain: stop the mining and agricultural development of the West. Powell was opposed by patriotic senators like Preston Plumb, William Stewart, and Wilbur F. Sanders:

Whether by design or not, the Major was dangled from a canyon rim, and heavy boots were ready to kick him over. The principle behind his Irrigation Survey was clear, Powell told the crowded room: "I think it would be almost a criminal act to go on as we are doing now, and allow thousands and hundreds of thousands of people to establish homes where they can not maintain themselves." Stewart cross-examined him for an hour, ending with a question that showed how little attention he had been paying: "What is your plan for settlement? ... by the General Government or by private enterprise?" Powell's answer: "By private enterprise."(Worster, A River Running West, p. 504).

All the senators could do is slow him down as his new department received more and more funding every year.

The railroad companies, who owned vast tracts of lands 183,000,000 acres (741,000 km) granted in return for building the railways, did not agree with Powell's views on land conservation. They aggressively lobbied Congress to reject Powell's policy proposals and to encourage farming instead, as they wanted to cash in on their lands. The US Congress went along and developed legislation that encouraged pioneer settlement of the American West based on agricultural use of land. Politicians based their decisions on a theory of Professor Cyrus Thomas who was a protege of Horace Greeley. Thomas suggested that agricultural development of land would change climate and cause higher amounts of precipitations, claiming that "rain follows the plow".

When Powell went to meet his Maker in 1902, he learned that evolution was a lie, but by then it was too late!!

British Empire Secret Service agent Charles Darwin!!

While the Powells were arriving in Palmyra, New York, Charles Darwin–fellow townsman of Powell–was setting out on HMS Beagle:

But the most severe shock to traditional Christian orthodoxy was yet to come–from Joseph Powell's former Shrewsbury townsman, Charles Darwin. While the Powells were arriving in Palmyra, Darwin was boarding the HMS Beagle as ship's naturalist. Returning home from Latin America and the South Pacific after nearly five years, he settled in the village of Down, not far from London, and began cogitating over his experiences, particularly the strange finches and tortoises of the islands named Galapagos. Twenty years of further reading and thinking led him finally to announce a revolutionary hypothesis. In July 1857 he put it in a letter to the Harvard botanist Asa Gray: "I assume that species arise like our domestic varieties with much extinction." He did not believe, that is, that the flora and fauna of the earth, humans included, were the direct artifacts of God; they had evolved under the pressure of competition for resources. The next year he went public, presenting before the Linnaean Society, along with his codiscoverer Alfred Russel Wallace, a theory of evolution through natural selection. And the year after that event Darwin's On the Origin of Species appeared in print, arguably the most important book of the century. Religious leaders on both sides of the Atlantic immediately denounced it as promoting "atheism," but within a decade or two most scientists accepted the theory as true. (Worster, A River Running West, pp. 65-66).

Darwin hated the Book of Genesis with a passion and the historical account of the Fall of Man:

To the woman he (JEHOVAH) said: "I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception; in pain you shall bring forth children; your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you(Genesis 3:16).

That verse was the first great bulwark against women ruling over men, and Darwin was determined to substitute the ASCENT of man for the Fall of Man.

Darwin claimed to have found the missing link when he visited Argentina and saw the Fuegian natives with their primitive ways. As always, Darwin the dunce was dead wrong about the origin of species and wrong about the Fuegian language.

Fuegian natives in Patagonia.

Darwin claimed to have found the missing link between monkeys and humans in Patagonia when he saw the primitive condition of the natives.

When Darwin heard them speak, he surmised that their language consisted of a few grunts.

In reality, it was more complex than English or Spanish.

Here is a quote about the Fuegian language from a Christian missionary named E. Lucas Bridges:

The belief that the Fuegians were cannibals was not the only mistake Charles Darwin made about them. Listening to their speech, he got the impression that they were repeating the same phrases over and over again, and therefore came to the conclusion that something like one hundred words would cover the whole language. We who learned as children to speak Yahgan know that, within its own limitations, it is infinitely richer and more expressive than English or Spanish. My father's Yahgan or Yamana-English Dictionary, to which I shall refer later, contains no fewer than 32,000 words and inflections, the number of which might have been greatly increased without departing from correct speech?
Darwin, when he saw the poverty and filth of these people, considered that, if he had not actually found the missing link for which he sought, these Fuegians were not far removed from it. Yet they had many social customs that were strictly observed, and though lying and stealing were usual, to call a man a liar, thief or murderer was a deadly insult. (Bridges, Uttermost Part of the Earth, pp. 34-35).

Darwin knew that in the 5000 years of recorded history, nobody had reported one species changing into another. He grew up in a rural area near farms, and he must have known that mating a horse with a jackass produces a sterile mule.

Darwin also hated the Biblical and genetic injunction against close relatives marrying. It was the illegality of King Henry's marriage to his dead brother's wife, Catherine of Aragon, that was the catalyst for the blessed Reformation in England.

"Kissin' Cousins" Darwin hated the Biblical and genetic injunction against consanguineous marriages.

His grotesque theory pulled down the barriers that protected society from the deadly effects of incest and inbreeding.

Close relatives marrying always leads to moral and physical degeneration....Darwin the Dunce had plenty of proof of that among the ruling dynasties of Europe . . . and the fake "Jews."

The Holy Bible says that the universe is only about 6,000 years old, and all the people alive today are descended from Noah and his family. Furthermore, all the geographic features of the present earth: high mountains, deep canyons, vast oceans, were formed rapidly during the year-long Flood of Noah.

St. Peter said that the Ark was a type of Christ:

For Christ also hath once suffered for our sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to Elohim, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; who formerly were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of Elohim waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water (I St. Peter 3:18-20).

Don't wait until it is too late to get on the Ark of safety. Heaven is a zillion times better than California and there are no spies there!!
